Mrs. Brown graduated from Stephen F. Austin High School in Houston where she was a member of the famed Scottish Brigade. She worked in various positions as an office manager. However, the positions she enjoyed the most were those of wife, mother, grandmother and aunt. With her late husband, she lived in many states as his job required.
Dorothy lived life to the fullest. She was a woman of faith, loved cooking, sewing and being with grand/great grandchildren. She enjoyed traveling whether it was Glacier N.P., Hong Kong or London. At age 90 she went sledding on the sand dunes in White Sands Nat’l. Monument. Dorothy thoroughly enjoyed Texas Aggie and Dallas Cowboy football. If a car was cranking up, she was climbing in. She loved to shop, especially for little ones. Dorothy was always ready to play card games, hear a good joke or story and laugh till she cried. Favorite TV show, Wheel of Fortune. Snickers, cookies and Blue Bell ice cream were her passion. But, most of all, she loved family and the family loved her.
She is preceded in death by her husband Marion J. Brown, Sr. and granddaughter Patricia Adams.
